Contra Costa County Heroes
CCC Heroes is dedicated to helping local frontline workers prosper through a wide range of housing benefits.
CCC Heroes was founded in 2020 by a group of local East Bay professionals who recognized the challenges some of our frontline workers face due to the high cost of housing in our community. They created a network of local real estate professionals that offer savings on their services to help make buying, owning and selling real estate more affordable.
